Their have been no reports of any injuries caused by the horses. One lady fell and got up and walked away according to news reports and the police. Mind you that isn't near as much fun as this fake news.

I mean, if someone's going to step in front of a horse, they're going to get trampled. Horses aren't trained to recognize and avoid "stupid truckers."
Nobody "stepped in front of a horse". The police rode their horses right through people who were standing there.

You didn't watch the video, did you?

Here it is:

Just curious, is there a date by which time this "protest" is supposed to end, or is it to just go on until the government resigns or gives them whatever they want?
Hard to put a date on ending a protest for the what they want when they don't even know what they want.

The world is definitely watching. We've all been watching a ton of humans promote things that cause more kids to lose their parents during a pandemic when they shouldn't have.

We don't fight actual christians.

It takes far less for right wingers to play the victim. But yes, mounties have definitely been pulling their punches by comparison to how US police treated BLM protests.

I wasn’t thinking about the BLM protests specifically. I was thinking about any large scale protest lasting several days; refusing to disperse.

US protesters were violent criminals looting, committing arson, vandalizing and violently attacking cops with frozen water bottles, pepper spray and fireworks. See the difference?

A small group of trucker block the entire country for two weeks. The reason for their protest is not supported by a vast majority of not only the country but the other truckers. They violate the law by their continued protest and want to continue to do so by not getting vaccinated. So the country gave them time to hold their protest and are now are being moved out of the way. If they do not want to get trampled, then move as they,nnot the police are violating the law. Sorry, I have more compassion for the horse.

I didn't see the trampling.

Didn't really need to, though.

The brainless twit Trudeau could have prevented all of this if he wasn't a moron.

But he is a moron. I guess, in light of the Prime Miniature being a moron, this outcome was unavoidable.

Most of the world is dropping mandates as covid subsidies and Canada will vey soon do the same. Baby face is just acting like a petulant child by not bargaining with these truckers and when mandates end in Canada everyone will be asking what he arrested all the truckers for.

We started rolling them back before the occupation and are well on the way to having most gone. Some Provinces might already be there. The federal mandate requiring vaccination as a requirement of entry isn't going away any time soon. Can you please point me to countries that had a vaccine mandate and have dropped those requirements?
